Calling All Musicians – Sweetwater Sound

Nearly everyone in Fort Wayne knows where Sweetwater Sound is located. Their huge sign along highway 30 is just about impossible to miss. I'm guessing too most people know Sweetwater has a retail center and offers music lessons - you can gather that much from sitting at the light at US 30 reading the sign.
